Topic: An Illuminating Project

Some months ago I created a sliding version of ‘The Sharper Image’ card that appeared in AVTAK and was rather pleased with the end result.

I then started to wonder if it was possible to create a sliding version that actually lit up, It took me some time to work out the build process and how I could contain all the electronics into the sliding mechanism and after 3 attempts a satisfactory working version was finally created, the red and green lights are operated by two separate switches which gives a choice of which light is illuminated.

The one thing I have learned from this is how to solder a resistor 1mmx2mm to a wiring circuit with the aid of a magnifying glass, which is easier said than done!! ajb007/smile

At this time I have no plans to go any further with this project unless I can refine the build process.

I hope you enjoy the pictures ajb007/martini

Re: An Illuminating Project

Rob, with the creation of your lock-pick credit card and now with this AVTAK card, you have graduated into a full-blown propmaker. Your brilliant paper props are the best out there but your advancement into the world of hand props truly showcase your workmanship! They are all magnificent additions to anyone's collection!!!!!   ---Ed
